Iheanacho was dropped to the substitutes bench by Claude Puel for the encounter at the Molineux Stadium.

 

The Super Eagles forward was introduced for Jamie Vardy in the second half with the scores tied at 0-0 which it eventually ended as both sides were forced to spot-kicks to determine who would progress to the next round.

Second choice goalkeeper Danny Ward was the hero as Leicester City advanced on penalties to the next round.

The shot-stopper saved three spot-kicks as Iheanacho scored the winning penalty for the Foxes.

 

He took to his official Twitter account to hail the heroics of the goalkeeper and the victory.

He said, "Great support from our fans. On to the next round, Weldon to the hero of the day Danny Ward wish my bro @22Demarai Quick recovery."

Compatriot Wilfred Ndidi did not take part in the encounter and was rested but also took to his official Twitter account to hail the efforts of the team.

He said, "Yess lads.. come on Leicester   great saves Wardy        . @22Demarai."

 

Iheanacho's first goal of the season came in a Carabao Cup game against Fleetwood Town in the previous round and produced the winning penalty against Wolves to see his side progress.

The 21-year-old will hope to regain a starting spot when Leicester City return to action away at Newcastle United in their next Premier League fixtures scheduled for Saturday, September 29.
